Clean Bill Of Health

Got a clean bill of health From my doctor today So I'm feeling darn good That's needless to say! For a man of my age That's a pretty good thing Thought one or two parts Would need replacing But hooray, hallelujah I'm good for a while No need for pills Can't wipe off the smile! With a positive outlook You've won half the battle It's mind over matter Just don't ya get rattled! I could surely continue For many more verses There's no funeral pending So send back the hearses © Jack Ellison 2012

    My Dad has Chemo mon- wed... then only one more Dec 26th-29th... He's perking up in attitude and his health is looking better... We went out and got him a cat to be a companion... for when I leave some time in January... about the middle... I'll miss Christmas and New Years with the family... But they say they'll survive... Merry Christmas!
